Batson DogTrot House


This home was built for the Batson’s daughter, Kitty (Catherine) in 1855, who raised her children in the house and lived there until she died. Housed in the parlor is a baby tender from the 1700s. It was found in Sarah Hale’s home in Massachusetts.

Sarah wrote “Mary Had A Little Lamb” in 1830 and was a crusader in making Thanksgiving a national holiday.
